hello loves, and welcome back to M. A. N.~ i hope you’re doing well, during this time, and that you’re staying safe and healthy.
it has been about a month since i last uploaded a blog post, and i sincerely apologize. with everything that is going on, i needed time to adjust, and wanted to make sure that i was okay with the changes before getting back into the swing of posting on the regular.
if you haven’t noticed — i purchased my domain! after five years, i finally own my domain, and have access to many more features that WordPress provides. so, be on the look out for the changes that will be made! with that being said, i would appreciate if you remain patient with me as i finalize the schedule, design, mood, color scheme, etc.
in today’s post, i will be going into detail about the changes i would like to make with M. A. N., and i will also update you with everything that is currently going on in my life. this update will explain why i have been distant for the past month, and i hope that it will justify my sudden absence.
hello loves~ welcome back to my blog! i was planning on doing something more “inspiring” for this post, but let’s be honest… we all knew that wasn’t going to happen :’)
instead, i wanted to do something more laid back and chill — hence why i am writing this live on january 17th at 12:30pm.
for 2020 one of my goals is really get back into the swing of things. at this point, i have been out of school for 8 months, and i am dying of boredom and just tired of my daily monotonous routine. when i was in university, i thought the monotony was bad — but i was kidding myself: i am currently living such a repetitive and uninspiring life.
if you would like to hear about my recent life struggles, i invite you to watch my youtube update:
although you can’t see what has been going on behind the scenes, i have been trying really hard to be productive at the start of this year. i started my bullet journal for the year, started planning for my blog and youtube channel, and organizing my life more efficiently.
in terms of my blog, i think wednesday are the best days to upload because it gives me time to work ahead, get my editing done, finish some last-minute details, etc.
this semester, i am retaking a class that can dictate everything for me in regards to my academic career — so i am really trying to focus and be productive with that class. with that being said, i think posting once a week is the best thing for me right now. it will allow me to prioritize and just enjoy the process of creating without stressing me out, and taking a toll on my mind and soul.
i do plan on officiating my domain, but i need to prove to myself that i can keep up with the pressures of life and maintaining my hobbies on the side. therefore, i will work really hard on getting my -ish together. in reality, there should be no excuse: i am out of school (for the most part), i have had plenty of time to sit around and do nothing, and i am honestly so tired of just sitting around and being an unproductive potato.
i think i will go ahead and wrap up this post because i feel like i can babble for forever and keep repeating the same thoughts — but that’s reserved for my journal :’)
i will definitely see you guys next wednesday with some REAL content! i hope you will continue to be patient and understanding. for those who have stuck around for the past few years, i sincerely appreciate you for sticking in there. i know i have not been the best at this “influencer” thing but i am honestly working on it!
hello lovelies and happy sunday! I hope you have been healthy, high-spirited, and caring towards others. It has been a long while since I lasted posted (I believe it has been roughly four months). Since my last update, many things have changed, and I am excited to share them with you! So, I hope you can take the time to go down memory lane with me! If not, I think I summarized everything in the vlog below, which was posted almost a month ago. If you would like to be up-to-date, please subscribe and follow my social media outlets!
Good afternoon loves~ How have you been? I hope everything is going well. Summer is right around the corner, and you will finally be able to catch your breathe. I have been doing well, and as usual, school is overtaking my life. However, I have been more open to going out, and trying to be more social. As many of you know, I am trying to revamp my blog, and YouTube channel since I am graduating in May. It’s a very slow process because I’m not use to actively trying to be productive with my hobbies, but I’m getting there!
I am planning on purchasing my domain after I graduate, but before I can do that — I really need to get use to getting back into the flow of things. So far, I have a general idea of what I want to change, but I need to be more decisive before I can start playing around with it. I know I want to keep this space as more of a lifestyle blog because I don’t want to limit myself when I have many interests. When I first started my blog, almost four years ago, it was meant to be an outlet for my creative side since I am always focusing on my logical and scientific side at school. Unfortunately, I was getting more and more overwhelmed with school, and started to cut back on my blog — which I regret. Now, I still want to maintain this space as a way for me to use my creative side, but more as a hobby and part-time job, than an outlet.
I will keep the schedule the way it is since it works really well with school and work: ** Wednesdays at 2:00 PM CST ** Saturdays at 2:00 PM CST
Overall, this note is to prove that I am alive, and proof that I am going to be more accountable on my blog and my YouTube channel. If you guys have any recommendations on what you would like to see, please let me know! For now, I gotta get ready for class — ‘Till next time~
Greetings Loves! It has been about a week and a half since I finished the semester, and I have recharged! I am ready to make a come back on my blog and youtube channel.
But first, while I’m waiting for my first video to render, should I solidify my schedule, or keep it on a “whenever I can” type schedule?
The options for a solid schedule include:
1x a week: Friday; Saturday; or Sunday
2x a week: Wednesday + Saturday
2x a week: Friday + Sunday
3x a week: Wednesday + Friday + Saturday
Realistically speaking, 1x or 2x a week is more my speed, but if you would like to see me try to push out 3x a week — I can make it work!
With that being said, I am graduating from my undergraduate journey in May 2019, so I would prefer my blog to be fully functional by that time. This blog was originally suppose to be my creative outlet, and it still is; however, during the past 3.5 years, it was a struggle for me to adjust with school and trying to find time for everything.
During this winter break, I am really looking forward to getting everything in order, and returning back to good habits of being happy and productive!
Get ready, because I will be trying to push out more quality content!
I finally did it! I finally uploaded a vlog about a week as a college senior. I realize that it’s now the fourth or fifth week of school, but that’s okay. I changed my editing format, and I hope you enjoy!
I’m sorry that this post is just a note, but how are you?
I’m doing pretty well, and forever and always, I’m so sorry that I fell off the face of the Earth — again… This summer was pretty hectic since I was preparing for my applications and finishing up the rest of my credits.
This is my senior year, and luckily I have a four day weekend this semester, and am potentially a part-time student next semester. My hope is to try and push out more content, but more high quality content — which makes it harder for me to upload and post as much as I want to.
Regardless, I am trying my best, and am currently building up a treasure chest full of content so I can stay ahead of the ball game, and not force y’all to wait so long.
If you guys have any ideas on what type of content you would like to see, please let me know in the comments, or on any social media platform you’re comfortable with! I may also throw a poll up soon.
With that, this concludes my note — I’ll talk to you guys soon, pinky promise!
How are y’all doing today? — I hope you’re having a pretty good day. I’m so sorry for missing Saturday’s post, I swear this one was suppose to be for then, but I was getting caught up with prepping for a wedding I was attending that I forgot.
